hotel room

Do you think it is rude/tacky to reserve a handicapped room if you are not handicapped? 

I have been put in one because it was available and they seem larger in size - had more elbow room.  I was booking a room for me, DH, our 4 year old and 2 year old.  The last time we stayed in a hotel my youngest was in a pack n play and the room was soooo tiny and squishy when we were in there - even though it wasnt for very long.  I am a person that likes a lot of elbow room and get frustrated with no room to move. 

I ended up booking a regular room because i would feel horrible taking a handicapped room just for extra space. 

What is your opinion about it? 

Just curious :)

Upgrade to a suite, if you can. You'll have extra room. I would feel bad getting a handicapped room.

I used to work in a hotel. If you would like a handicap room just book a normal room, then at check-in ask if there is a handicap room available that you can switch too. Chances are that 99% of the time there will be one available. We had 4 handicap rooms at my hotel. It was rare that they were all occupied at the same time.
